A number of artists have refused to carry out on the Tremendous Bowl’s half time present as a result of NFL’s therapy of Colin Kaepernick (and let’s not neglect punishing Janet Jackson however not Justin Timberlake for the 2004 wardrobe malfunction). Nevertheless, one artist doesn’t assist boycotting an occasion for social points. Akon thinks it is “silly.”
When requested by TMZ how he feels about Black artists declining to carry out on the Tremendous Bowl, Akon stated, “Truthfully, I feel that is silly. I’ll be as frank as doable, you on this enterprise for 2 causes, one is to make an influence and two is for the enterprise of it. Now in the event you’re a philanthropist and that is one thing you are feeling such as you consider in and also you battle for it, you’ve each proper. However in the event you’re doing it and also you’re wanting it as a method of increasing who you might be as an artist and as a enterprise, you even have that proper. So I don’t assume there’s a proper or mistaken reply for that.”
Whereas the response seemed like he was contradicting himself, he then added, “I feel generally folks take social points and make it rather a lot severe than it must be.”
However, is not that the purpose of social points, it’s severe?
